Amazing modern jazz from the estate of composer, arranger and baritone saxophonist Helmut Brandt, recorded March 1963 at Haus des Rundfunks in West Berlin – featuring Benny Bailey, Herb Geller, Nat Peck and Ack van Rooyen. One-off concert of mostly unknown Brandt compositions played by eleven soloists from the Berlin radio orchestras of RIAS and SFB, including “Boogie Waltz”, “Opus C-Moll 794”, “Ferien-Suite” in six movements plus Jerry van Rooyen`s lost tunes “Trifi” and “Stellar”. Forgotten work by one of the key figures of cool and modern jazz in Germany, carefully restored and remastered for limited vinyl LP and 6-page-digipack CD/ digital album with two additional tracks.
